I would like to thank all of the volunteers who gave of their time and expertise in coaching our Y girls basketball teams. Those who were gracious enough to do so were Bennie Higdon, Josh Long, Mike Mattern, Danette Keininger, Kenneth Norman, Tim Hartley, Jeremy Boardman and Chad McWhirt as well as the parents and grandparents of the girls who were here for practices and games supporting those girls as they experienced, some for the first time, the great game of basketball. Thanks to all of you for supporting the kids of our community to learn, grow and see examples of positive leadership.
Also, a special note to recognize a few high school students who worked with the PreK-K girls. Shelby Stone, Kristyn Ford and Ranissa Shambarger worked with a group of little girls who were playing for the very first time. Those wide eyed little girls, clad in their pink colored Y basketball t-shirts listened to everything that the HS girls told them and then did their best to emulate what they saw and heard. Another example of positive young leaders, paying it forward. There were a few high school students that were also involved in that program as well as others here at the Y. Kyle & Kaleb Kelsheimer, Brodie Hough, Carter Frieden and Caitlyn Mullen did a good job working with the older girls, officiating their games and working inside the program. Speaking of the same, those same kids will be working with the boys basketball players who will be playing on Saturdays during January and February.
Gymnastics is underway for the January-February classes. Terri Adams and her instructors have begun working with kids from Pre-School up on gymnastics skills and moves. Those classes are on Monday nights beginning at 4:45pm. Terri is assisted by Tonya Cooper, Sidney Owens, Lyndzie Thomas and Kelsey Thomas. They would love to have more students involved in a quality program that keeps growing here at the Y.
